Affected providers are receivingnotification today.The objective behind these changes is in keeping with our goal of focusing the deliveryof employment services through providers offering the full range of services in onelocation. The ministry will work with Employment Resource Centre and Practice Firmproviders to ensure that affected clients continue to receive the employment servicesthey need and are referred to an existing Employment Service provider. Clients will alsobe able to find updates and search for employment service providers close to them onthe ministry’s public website at http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/tcu/search.html.It is important to note that the ministry will continue to support providers that deliverspecialized services, such as those for Persons with Disabilities.
